Malik recently said that after completing his current tenure, he will “fully participate” in the fight for farmers’ rights. (Express Photo by Shuaib Masoodi/File)Last week, former Jammu and Kashmir governor Satya Pal Malik, in an interview to The Wire, re-ignited the memories of what came to be known as ‘faxgate’ in Kashmir politics. Malik, who is now the Meghalaya governor, called Peoples Conference chairman Sajad Lone a blue-eyed boy of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, and said Lone wanted to become the J&K Chief Minister with just six legislators.

The incident dates back to November 2018 when Malik was the J&K governor and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) staked claim to form the government with support from its arch-rival National Conference and the Congress.

On November 21, 2018, five months after the BJP walked out of the coalition government, PDP president Mehbooba Mufti claimed she had tried to fax a letter to the Governor House claiming support of 56 MLAs, from the three parties, but it was “not received”. Mufti then posted the letter on Twitter, saying: “Have been trying to send his letter to Rajbhavan. Strangely the fax is not received. Tried to contact… Governor on phone. Not available.”

Immediately after Mufti made the letter public on social media, Lone, who was in London at the time, said his party too had staked claims to form the government. “We have sent letter to His Excellency the Governor staking our claim to form the government. Fax not working. We have WhatsApped it to PA to his Excellency @jandkgovernor,” Lone tweeted.

In his letter, Lone claimed support of the BJP and 18 other legislators, saying he will “submit the letter of support from BJP legislative party and other members as and when asked to do so”.
